TRB Synthesis   Discussion of “Influence of Interface Characteristics on the Shear Performance between Open-Graded Friction Course and Underlying Layer” by Weimin Song, Xiang Shu, Baoshan Huang, and Mark Woods Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering April   Open graded friction courses (OGFCs) are a type of pavement that have been built across the United States since the ’s.

These asphalt mixes contain only a small portion of fine aggregate, creating a pavement with a relatively large percentage of air are primarily composed of single size coarse aggregate, and generally have a high asphalt content. Proper design, selection and construction of open graded friction course (OGFC) pavements will and have reduced hydroplaning.

OGFC is an asphalt mixture comprised of a high percentage of coarse aggregates that are almost uniform in size, higher than normal amounts of performance graded asphalts that are normally polymer modified, and a small.

Open-Graded Friction Courses (OGFC) Recent opengraded friction- -course pavements built in the U.S. and Europe have considerably higher air void contents than before (17 to 22%).

The void content for hot mix asphalt (HMA) paving used in Tennessee is normally 4 to 7 percent. ewer OGFC mixes are muN ch more open with more voids. Open graded friction course (OGFC) is a thin permeable asphalt layer placed on the top of traditional dense graded asphalt pavement. OGFC mixtures designed for the requirement of stone-on-stone contact and high connected air void content are a special type of asphalt mixture characterized by the use of high quality open-graded aggregate [1.

• provide outstanding performance 3. HMA pavements are not affected by ice control chemicals. Building and site esthetics are enhanced. Traffic noise is minimized when pavement is asphalt utilized.

Specialty mixes such as Open Graded Friction Course are available when extra noise is.

Open Graded Friction Course (OGFC) – a hot mix asphalt surface mixture used to increase skid resistance and reduce hydroplaning in wet weather.

This mixture provides a free draining layer that permits surface water to migrate through the surface to the edge of the pavement.

Effect of Filler Type and Characteristics on Design of Open Graded Friction Course Mixes, 15th Annual International Conference on Pavement Engineering and Infrastructure, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK, FebThis paper gives the construction details and performance of Novachip after 4½ years in service.

Since this was the first Novachip project in the U.S. with the machine imported from France, some equipment related problems were encountered. The surface texture of Novachip is very similar to that of a typical open-graded friction course.

Effectiveness of Heavier Tack Coat on Field Performance of Open-Graded Friction Course. Compared with a conventional hot-mix asphalt mixture, an open-graded friction course (OGFC) is more prone to pavement distresses, such as cracking and raveling, which result in a shorter service life.

wet weather visibility, writes Gerald A. Huber in "Performance Survey on Open-Graded Friction Course Mixes," a synthesis of highway practice. "By draining the water quickly, you reduce splash and spray and thereby improve safety and visibility," says Peter Wu, state.

This laboratory study evaluated the influence of interface characteristics on the bonding properties between open-graded friction courses (OGFC) and the underlying layer.

One gravel OGFC and two commonly used underlying layers [one base material (BM) and one thin-layer D mixture (TLD)] were used in this study. Get this from a library! Performance survey on open-graded friction course mixes.
